July 25th, 2005, 08:21 AM #1'Thumbs' file
I recently discovered that a 'Thumbs' file was in my images folder. When I create a new images folder, it automatically was inside the images folder, I did not put it there.
When I click on it to try and open a pop up with this message:
You are attempting to open a file type "Data Base File"(.db) These files are used by the operating system and by various programs. Editing or modifying them could damage your system.
And when I click to delete it, the pop up message:
The file "Thumbs" is a system file. If you remove it, your computer or one of your programs may no longer work correctly.
Any tech expert can help me please? .
How does this "Thumbs" file come into my images folder and how can I get rid of it. If I were to leave it just there, is there any implication?

I have those appear too. Sometimes I delete 'em, and sometimes I ignore 'em, depending on my mood.
This must be my lucky day...a relevant result in #1 in G (I searched for, thumbs.db file with no quotes)
The thumbs.db file is generated by the Windows operating system. It is a database file containing the small images displayed when you view a folder in "thumbnail" view (as opposed to tile, icon, list, or detail view). No harm is done by deleting thumbs.db files.There is no knowledge that is not power. ~Hemingway
